"The Animal Economy" is MonoCulture's third official album. It was created during and directly after a study abroad trip, in the latter half of 2005. Sound sources were drawn from countless hours of field recordings harvested in Hiroshima, and from a stack of cheap vinyl purchased at a crusty thrift store in Phoenix, Arizona. On this release, MonoCulture veers away from IDM, into the genre of instrumental HipHop. The result is a rhythmic chopshop of drums stolen from bad Christian rock and forgotten soundtracks, mixed with electric organ, sine, and shakuhachi.

this is really neat electronics, an amazingly crafted melding of hip-hop and idm reminding of some subverseco and illmatik vibes material, i highly recommend it

A word from Mr. Jarndyce on the death of MonoCulture
The light is come upon the dark benighted way.
Dead! Dead, your Majesty. Dead, my lords and gentlemen. Dead, Right Reverends and Wrong Reverends of every order. Dead, men and women, born with Heavenly compassion in your hearts. And dying thus around us, every day.
